Master class on fair recruitment

Within the context of exacerbated challenges created by COVID 19 pandemic, the ILO’s General Principles and Operational Guidelines for Fair Recruitment and Definition of Recruitment Fees and Related Costs (GP&OG) provides invaluable guidance on how to ensure the recruitment process of workers, especially migrant workers. The GP&OG are organized in a way that respects the rights of those involved, the needs of communities of origin and destination, and takes into account the legitimate needs of employers and recruiters.

Based on the ILO Fair Recruitment Initiative Strategy, the ILO and ITC-ILO have developed a series of Master class on fair recruitment, to explain what can be done to reduce the risk of abusive and fraudulent recruitment of workers. The Masterclass on fair recruitment is divided into six modules:

  1. 1. Why fair recruitment matters
  2. 2. Legal and normative framework
  3. 3. Public and private employment services
  4. 4. Monitoring and enforcement
  5. 5. Business and private sector engagement
  6. 6. Union's Role
